This week Louise Bedford and I co host the Women In Confidence podcast and the Talking Trading podcast

Louise Bedford is a best-selling author of five books on the stockmarket. She is one of Australia’s most compelling speakers on the sharemarket, has been trading the markets since 1990, and trained thousands of people to maximise their own trading potential.

She is a behavioural finance expert and has degrees in Psychology and Business, and she can help you shortcut your way to success. She’s been running the 6-month repeat-for-free Mentor Program since the year 2000, and she’s also the founder of, a free weekly trading podcast. Known as ‘the corporate executive who lost the use of her arms and achieved financial freedom by trading with a pen in her mouth’ – she will inspire you to achieve your trading best.

Her presentations are not about vague concepts that don’t work in the real world. They are about incredibly practical, time-saving strategies that you need to implement in order to become an extremely successful trader. Her key areas of focus are using candlestick charts, trading psychology, pattern detection, the impact of neuro-psychology on trading decisions and trading crisis management.

Officially crowned as Australia’s ‘Candlestick Queen’, she’s known as the trader that brought this fascinating technique to Australia.

When she’s not hanging out with her traders, she is spending time with her two children and husband, lifting weights at the gym, and enjoying yoga… and trying to get a glimpse of her own reflection on the back of her business partner, Chris Tate’s, bald head.

You’re going to want to listen to absolutely every word she has to say.
